North Korea's Kim hails 'unity' with China in new visit

"If Kim does not want to abandon his nuclear arms completely, then China will be happy to act as a broker between Pyongyang and the U.S.".

The phrase "step by step" was deliberate, showing that China supported Kim's own proposed pace of denuclearization.

Kim and President Xi had a one-on-one chat, . where they reportedly exchanged opinions on the current situation and urgent worldwide issues.

During their Singapore summit, Mr Kim, who is Chairman of the State Affairs Commission, promised complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula in return for security guarantees from Mr Trump.

Kim's third trip to China in three months was a sign the two nations still get along and that even though China was not involved in the Kim-Tump summit it is still influential. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump had initially said in response to reports that a warhead was developed by North Korea that could be mounted on a ballistic missile.

Xi said the relationship between the two countries is being bolstered and "a new future" in bilateral ties. Kim also visited the Beijing Rail Traffic Control Center, where the Chinese capital's railways and subways are controlled and managed.

China can also help Kim normalize North Korea's diplomatic status.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".

-Chinese relations also serve to diminish the likelihood that China will continue to cooperate with the international-sanctions regime.

Mr Noh Kyu Deok said Seoul hopes China will play a "constructive role" in resolving the issue, and that Mr Kim's visit to Beijing would contribute to that.

President Trump is condemning the mainstream media for the negative coverage of the joint summit with North Korea.

In 2003, during his first stint as premier, he introduced the controversial "July 1 Economic Measures".

As the visit is taking place in the midst of a major trade row between China and the U.S. that is threatening to turn into a full-fledged trade war, some analysts think the Chinese could be taking this opportunity to let the United States see that its trade actions could affect other areas of its bilateral relationship with China. When the United Kingdom complained in 2011 that the alleged remains of a British fighter pilot were not a pilot, British, or human, the North Korean military replied, "Too bad".

But now experts believe that Kim's visit to China to meet president Xi Jinping should be seen as a warning that Trump's trade tariff's on China could undermine the peace goal with North Korea.

North Korea has rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament.

South Korea urged North Korea on Wednesday to present a plan with concrete steps toward denuclearization, raising the pressure on its leader Kim Jong Un as he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a visit created to convey the countries' growing closeness.

He added that after the US-North Korea summit, the Trump administration has taken steps in accordance with the agreement reached between the two sides, but Kim has yet to take corresponding action, referring to the decision to suspend joint South Korea-US military drills.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted during a cabinet meeting on Thursday that North Korea will follow through on the Kim regime's vague promise to denuclearize - otherwise, he reasoned, totalitarian dictator Kim Jong Un's worldwide reputation could take a hit.
